The Short story?

Alex Alexander

I care deeply about friendships + community. 

I didn’t have a healthy support system growing up.
So, I built one… out of friends.

I believe we can impact our connections, friendships, community and overall support systems more than we've been led to believe.

Words from our listeners

I just spent my 40th birthday weekend with a menagerie of friends that have shown up and been present my life in all sorts of stages. I want to thank you for your friendship wheel and for the language to describe different friendships. You gave me the language to describe my friendships. I talked about how nobody at that table has the responsibility, including my husband, to be my everything. I told them that being "my everything" is an impossible role to fill. Friendship isn't all-or-nothing that there's spectrums of friendship. There's there's roles that we all fill, and that collectively, the people sitting around the table make me feel so full and loved.
